SPECIAL ABILITIES
Favored Class: Wizard. +1 HP at first, second levels

Arcane Bond: Familiar (rat). +2 to Fortitude saves; Alertness feat when within arm's reach.

Summoner's Charm: Whenever Pontia casts a conjuration (summoning) spell, the duration is increased by a number of rounds equal to 1/2 her wizard level (minimum 1).

Acid Dart: As a standard action, Pontia can unleash an acid dart targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The acid dart deals 1d6 points of acid damage +1 for every 2 wizard levels. The attack ignores spell resistance. (7/day) Used

Pontia is tall and slender, with short black hair and dark eyes. She typically dresses in modest and practical wizard's robes, and puts little or no effort into dressing well or looking good; her hair is short because it's less trouble that way, and she's more than had her fill of working to be attractive. Most of the time she comes across as disinterested and aloof, but that's because she spends a lot of time thinking and doesn't put much effort into presentation (except when she's teaching). It's not that she's rude, it's just that social activities don't interest her very much. Her usually calm manner disguises a razor wit, generally only employed on recalcitrant students.

Religion: Pontia is a reasonably devout Asmodean.

Background:
Pontia has not led a sheltered life. She was born in Magnimar to a Varisan mother, the result of a single night's tryst with a Chelaxian visitor. Her mother named her Anca, and when she was very young made the ultimately fatal mistake of trying to find Anca's father in Westcrown. Fortunately for young Anca, she at least looked Chelaxian, so after her mother died she wasn't persecuted too badly in the gang of homeless children she fell in with. She soon realized that a life on the streets was all too likely to be brutish and short, and resolved that she would one day make something of herself.

Her first way off the streets came when she began to grow into a moderately attractive young woman. Prostitution was not what she wanted to end up doing, but it was at least a chance to make enough money to satisfy her intellectual appetites (and the laws of Cheliax offered her some small amount of protection from abusive pimps and customers). For her towering intellect would not be denied. Finally, after years of barely tolerated unpleasant work only undertaken to purchase the tomes she craved, she became a wizard and left prostitution forever. As a sign of that she changed her name and (with his permission and blessing) took the family name of Titus Canario, her tutor in wizardry.

With her past behind her and in name and appearance a true Chelaxian, she relocated to Egorian. There, using Titus' contacts, she set herself up as a tutor for the children of noble families, which the elder Canario had likewise done before the Thrune Ascendancy.

Notes & Useful Pastes:

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Arcane Bond: Amulet. Once per day, Pontia can cast any one spell in her spellbook through the amulet, even if she has not memorized it for the day.

Summoner's Charm: Whenever Pontia casts a conjuration (summoning) spell, the duration is increased by a number of rounds equal to 1/2 her wizard level (minimum 1).

Acid Dart: As a standard action, Pontia can unleash an acid dart targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The acid dart deals 1d6 points of acid damage +1 for every 2 wizard levels. The attack ignores spell resistance. (7/day) Used

Pontia is tall and slender, with short black hair and dark eyes. She typically dresses in modest and practical wizard's robes, and puts little or no effort into dressing well or looking good; her hair is short because it's less trouble that way, and she's more than had her fill of working to be attractive. Most of the time she comes across as disinterested and aloof, but that's because she spends a lot of time thinking and doesn't put much effort into presentation (except when she's teaching). It's not that she's rude, it's just that social activities don't interest her very much.

Religion: Pontia has no truck with the worship of Asmodeus, though she knows better than to openly profess that opinion. She primarily follows the faith of Abadar, seeing in the Judge of the Gods a patron of orderly civilization, although like many arcanists and scholars she also reveres Nethys.

Background: Pontia has not led a sheltered life. She was born in Magnimar to a Varisan mother, the result of a single night's tryst with a Chelaxian visitor. Her mother named her Anca, and when she was very young made the ultimately fatal mistake of trying to find Anca's father in Westcrown. Fortunately for young Anca, she at least looked Chelaxian, so after her mother died she wasn't persecuted too badly in the gang of homeless children she fell in with.

Finally, after years of barely tolerated unpleasant work only undertaken to purchase the tomes she craved, she became a wizard and left prostitution forever. As a sign of that she changed her name and (with his permission and blessing) took the family name of Titus Canario, her tutor in wizardry.

But her success as a scholar and wizard in Westcrown couldn't fully erase the stigma she carried from her upbringing (or lack thereof). More than that, she knew that there were countless others like her on the streets and alleys of Westcrown, a vast sea of wasted human potential. For the sake of all those might-be Pontias, someone had to do something. Something had to change.

These days, she spends most of her time on scholarship, wizardry, and investigating ways and means for changing things in Westcrown for the better. She's quite enthusiastic about all of these, but she lives for scholarly discussions...preferably in venues where her history, appearance, and gender are immaterial.

Notes & Useful Pastes: Pontia has two Hero Points.
